But anyways I don't think changing gun laws will do very much. Some basic way in how we sensationalize news and mass murders like what currently is happening in the media is why these things keep happening. Did you see the slashing in China that killed 20? Did you read my idea about the RFID chip? We literally must go that far if a direct law involving guns is to do very much. It only takes one person and one gun. Perhaps makes bullets outrageously expensive?

Yes, and in China, nobody died. The type of weapons available to these psychos is hugely important. Lanza would have killed far fewer people if he did not have access to the AR-15 and the big clips in the first place. Banning the sale and possession of those things alone might have cut the death toll in half, if not more.

An RFID chip seems like a pretty extreme idea that would also do nothing to stop the legal owners of these weapons from carrying out a massacre. Bottom line is, countries with very strict gun laws almost never have mass shootings of this kind.
